RIZAL DAY RITES -- THE 119th commemoration of the martyrdom of Dr. Jose P. Rizal took center stage on Dec. 30 with Baguio Mayor Mauricio Domogan leading in remembering the sacrifices and patriotism of the country’s national hero.  This year’s commemoration theme is “Rizal 2015: Dangal ng Pilipino, gabay sa pagbabago.” -- Redjie Cawis

The city government led by Rep. Nicasio Aliping, Jr; Mayor Mauricio Domogan and Rizal Monument barangay officials, line agency heads and employees, and private entities were together last Wednesday morning, Dec. 30 for Jose Rizal’s 119th year of heroism.

The simple ceremonies done at the portion of Burnham Park named in Rizal’s honor; was graced by the Knights of Rizal, Kababaihang Rizalista, representatives of the Rizal Commercial and Banking Corporation, World War II veterans, and members of the Baguio Filipino-Chinese community.

The mayor led in the wreath-laying.

In his message, Domogan urged passive individuals to be “confident catalysts and act courageously for positive change; look up to Rizal as a model. Though not as wholly as Rizal is considered a genius with many skills and talents; a physician, teacher, poet, historian, musician, linguist, sculptor, theologian, novelist, and others; we should aspire for the better,” he said.

“To change the world positively, individuals should submit to change negative attitudes and beliefs, unhealthy habits and mindset; to be confident positive advocacies, he added. Complaining, whining, bickering and divisiveness should cease specially in environmental, leadership, peace and order, criminality and other difficult issues being faced in the community. Light a candle instead of cursing the darkness,” he added.

Aliping, who spoke in Filipino, said values represented by Rizal should be acted out as a legacy of Rizal’s martyrdom and patriotism.

The theme for this year’s celebration is, “Rizal 2015: Dangal ng Pilipino, gabay sa pagbabago.”
